U.S. Open Day 2: ‘Greens Are Poor’

Darren Clarke shot 72 on Friday and made the cut at 145, just six shots off the lead. Not that he’s happy. He’s rather disgruntled, actually.

"The greens are poor, basically," Clarke told the Associated Press. "They are poa greens, and they are very poor."

Darren, tell us how you really feel.

"They are jumping about, and with the combination of slope and the speed, it makes it very tough to hole putts on," he added.

Still, Clarke is in the hunt. What will it take for him to win?

"Just hole some putts, but I don't know how I'm going to do that."

My club went from bent to po greens a few years ago. The po greens are easier to maintain but bumpy as heck in the afternoon.
